HELSINKI - A man and a woman with foreign backgrounds have been detained in Finland on suspicion of financing terrorism and recruiting people for terror attacks on another country, police said on Saturday.
"There is a reason to believe these actions are related to such an organisation which is suspected of terrorism actions," Detective Inspector Kaj Bjorkqvist from the National Bureau of Investigation said.The two suspects had been under surveillance by the security intelligence service before their arrest on Sept. 7, police said. They appeared at Helsinki district court a week ago and were remanded in custody at a special hearing for which court papers have not been released.
